Ask Away! | columbia md photographer

December 9th, 2010

Ok, how’s this for a fun post?  Ask me a question, and I’ll answer it!  Nothing too personal (though I’ll gladly tell you what kind of toothpaste I use or what kind of milk is in our fridge!) and I’m not giving away any of my business secrets – at least not publicly.  But go […]

Not only is it primary election time (did you know that early voting starts tomorrow?), but it’s time to fill out another important ballot!  The September issue of Maryland Family magazine is available around town (it’s FREE!) and it’s the annual voting issue.

I’d love it if you’d take a moment to fill out the ballot on pages 39 and 40 and vote for Emily Steele Photography as Best Family/Kids’ Photographer.  You must vote for a total of 10 categories for your ballot to be counted, and ballots must be mailed by Sept 23, 2010, but Maryland Family Magazine pays the postage for you!  Thank you for your vote!

Strawberries

April 27th, 2010

Ok, I admit it.  I bought the incredibly cheesy infomercial product Topsy Turvy Strawberry planter.  My whole family loves strawberries, my older son is at the age to really start appreciating how plants grow, and I had a coupon at Bed Bath and Beyond. In late March (I think) our strawberry plants arrived.  25 “plants”.  […]

Ok, I admit it.  I bought the incredibly cheesy infomercial product Topsy Turvy Strawberry planter.  My whole family loves strawberries, my older son is at the age to really start appreciating how plants grow, and I had a coupon at Bed Bath and Beyond.

In late March (I think) our strawberry plants arrived.  25 “plants”.  More like roots.  I was pretty skeptical, but we planted them, and we’ve been dutifully watering them every day, when the rain didn’t do it for us.  After a week or so, we saw some green, and by the end of spring break, we came home to green leaves poking out everywhere.  (3 of the plants didn’t grow, but out of 25+ (we got a few extra), I’m ok with that.)  About a week and a half ago, I noticed our first bud.  We’ve over a dozen buds now, and the first one is a full-fledged flower!  Won’t be long before we’ve got our first harvest of berries.

Here, though, is our first bud, taken at the end of last week, and a couple of it’s “younger siblings”:

The End of Summer

August 29th, 2009

It’s been a crazy summer for me. Slow for photography, but very busy otherwise! We sold our townhouse, bought a new house, packed, and moved! The unpacking still isn’t finished. We’re currently going with the “cardboard box” decor. My oldest starts kindergarten on Monday, and my youngest starts nursery school Sept 15. All sorts of […]

Well, it looks like I’ve been tagged. I got tagged by Hope Brown – you should definitely visit her site!

Here are the rules:

1. Post the rules on your blog.
2. Write 7 random things about yourself.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post.
4. Pass on the tag

Here are 7 random things about me:
1. I know way too much about car seats.
2. I cannot stand swiss cheese.
3. I am a HUGE muppet fan.
4. Our printer is out of ink, and I’m too lazy to go find the new one.
5. I grew up in NC, went to high school in PA, college in NY, and never went further west than Alabama until I was in grad school.
6. I hate going to the beach.
7. My cat thinks I’m her own personal sofa right now.

Now, let’s see…  I tag… WifeandMommy, Amy, Michelle, Phenway and that’s all I can think of.  :)
